Leading operational management technology company, Commit Works, announced today that it has appointed Henry Ye to their board of directors.
Henry, along with co-founder Adam Kossak, founded Aequora Capital, a private principal investment firm focused on high growth technology businesses with global potential, and has become an investor in Commit Works since 2018.
Henry began his career as a software engineer working in technical roles in companies such as EDS Australia, eCorp, TIBCO Software and has also spent time as a management consultant at the Boston Consulting Group.
At the end of 2001, Henry joined a small private software company to develop its international logistics software. Henry became an original investor and a senior development manager at the company, and later as product manager, GM for corporate development, and most recently as Managing Director for Greater China. Today, the company renamed to WiseTech Global, and is listed on the ASX with over $8 billion market cap.
“I’m very excited to be part of another great Australian company that will have a significant impact on an important global industry.” Henry added. “Having been part of WiseTech Global, I can see Commit Works traveling on a similar journey and I’m very keen to share my experience and learnings with the team”.
Commit Works enables frontline teams to plan, coordinate and control work in challenging operational work environments such as underground and open cut mining. Planned work is both safer and more productive than unplanned work. Since adopting this software, mining operations owned by major mining firms like Rio Tinto, Anglo American and Barrick Gold have increased the production of their operations, in most cases by over 30%, whilst also improving their safety records.
Commit Works CEO, Paul Moynagh, is excited to have Henry join the team. “Henry’s experience growing WiseTech into an eight-billion-dollar company will be extremely valuable for us as we scale up to meet our global potential.”
“Henry has strong expertise applying the theory of constraints to growing software businesses and I believe this will help us remove and avoid some of the constraints in our business so that we can consistently achieve more with less effort” added Moynagh.
